Saturday 6-9-12 Color Challenge -- Queens Diamond Jubilee

Since it was Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee, I wanted to do something in honor of her. I found the photos on the internet along with the following information.


The Queen was born on 21 April 1926 in Mayfair, London.

Christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, she was the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Albert and Elizabeth, who would later become King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

Princess Elizabeth was born third in line of succession to the throne after Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), and her father, The Duke of York – it was not expected that she would one day become Queen.

In 1930, Princess Elizabeth’s sister was born, Princess Margaret Rose. The two sisters were educated at home under the supervision of their mother, and enjoyed a relatively peaceful and happy childhood.

Whilst Elizabeth was still a young girl, she unexpectedly became first in line to the throne … the ‘heiress presumptive’ … and public interest in her life began to grow.


The photos are: Queen Elizabeth as a baby (top middle), Queen Elizabeth at her Coronation in 1953 (top left and right), Queen Elizabeth at her Diamond Jubilee (bottom left and right).



Supplies Used:

JRA I Love London Collection -- Paper Union Jack, Alphas, Flowers, Word Art

That's a great set of pictures tracing the queen's life. I like the way you've used the Union Jack to divide your page.

What a great layout of the Queen's life. Love the flag in the background. I especially love the baby photo, its easy to forget we were all babies once.

The structure the flag gives the page works very well! I also enjoy the facts you include. I remember when I toured the Anne Frank house in The Netherlands, there was a clipping about Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret as young girls. The embellishments you used are "just enough" to set off your layout. Thanks for joining in this week's Saturday Color Challenge!
